The 1st green at Galashiels Golf Course
The 1st green at Galashiels Golf Course
A view towards Buckholm Hill. The 1st hole used to be a par 4, but was shortened to a par 3 and a new green built after a housing developer bought some adjacent fields to the old green. Concerns were raised about golf balls entering the new housing scheme, and this caused a lengthy debate at the time, but the developer won the day and the hole was shortened.
Update on Galashiels Golf Course:-
As from Sunday 2nd March 2008, the course ceased to be an 18 hole layout and has been reduced to 9 holes. As a result this hole will no longer be a part of the official layout but will likely be kept as a practice facilities. For a full explanation of the move to 9 holes, see NT5036 : Playing the 15th hole at Galashiels Golf Course for the final time.
